Many ways to discover the fantastic Fraser Coast this Easter

April 10, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The Fraser Coast is filled with natural wonders and exciting eco-adventures for you to experience this Easter and the best place to start is the Fraser Coast Discovery Sphere.

With live animals talks and displays and fascinating interpretive panels and activities, it is a fun, interactive way to learn and get inspired about our amazing region and its creatures.

IMG_9399Over the holidays, you can feed clown fish, stroke a starfish, pat a dingo, cuddle a kangaroo and get up close and personal with reptiles and snakes at a number of special daily sessions.

Look into the murky depths of the freshwater aquarium and come face to face with Larry the lungfish, an ancient living fossil.

Learn about the uniqueness of world heritage listed Fraser Island and its inspiring beauty and ecology.

Become immersed in the incredible world of the humpback whale with an “underwater encounter”, a full sized reproduction of a whale skeleton and discover how the whales sing.

Other sea creatures, the waterways of the Great Sandy Strait, the Mary River ecosystem and the origins of the Macadamia nut are also on show in a series of displays designed to educate and inspire you to discover more.

A theatre experience will take you on a journey to a rarely seen side of the Fraser Island and Great Sandy Strait, and let you delve deep into the underwater world of the whales.

Woven throughout the Discovery Sphere displays and theatre experience are the dreamtime legends of the Butchulla People and artwork celebrating and explaining their stories and traditions handed down through thousands of years.

As well as the wildlife sessions, children can get hands-on with natural discovery in a dedicated children’s section with storytelling and interactive challenges.

After a visit to the Discovery Sphere, it is time to experience the real thing. The centre’s information kiosk and gift store has information, trails and brochures and can handle tour bookings.

Residents who are Staycations members can receive more than 25% off the admission price and entry is free if accompanied by a visiting friend or relative.

The Fraser Coast Discovery Sphere at 166 Old Maryborough Road is open seven days a week from 10am to 4pm.  For more go to
